I’ve debated for a while as to how much to say and how much to reveal about how Tuesday went, and I think that this is one of those days in life where it’s going to be okay not to share everything. I can tell you that for the entire day, it felt like walking through life in somebody else’s body.
The funeral and burial services were what they were. Well, I mean that they were perfect, beautiful, and emotional. The end. Liam is buried at Cedar Hill Cemetery in Castle Rock, and he is in Section 1…if you are ever in the area and would like to stop by for a visit – I’m sure that he would like it.
Just like the morning, in the evening we found ourselves overwhelmed by love and support. Hundreds of friends and family came down to greet us and to show us how much we are cared for. It was probably one of the most humbling experiences of our lives, and one that we will not soon forget. We know that a lot of schedules had to change, a lot of babysitters hired, and a lot of gas tanks filled – but please know that we are so grateful that you made the effort and came down…it means so much to the both of us.
As the immediacy of loosing Liam dissolves in the next few weeks, the new reality will harshly set in. We have needed you all up until now, and we will need you all in new ways in the future. Please check in on us, send us e-mails and texts, stop over, and encourage us to visit you. Thank you for everything you have done, and for everything that you are going to do.
